Dachstein Sky Walk, Austria

From series “Elegant Architectural Structures for Fans of Skywalks”
Lenght: 100 meters.

It’s possible to find amazing architectural monuments even in the most hidden corners of the planet. The bridge built on the Dachstein glacier is an excellent example. This spectacular bridge with an observation deck, which is the final element of the structure, is situated in the Austrian town of Dachstein. The sight was built at the terminal cable car station, high in the mountains. Using the lift, travelers can climb to an altitude of 2 700 meters. After that they will be able to stroll through the beautiful glass bridge and admire the panoramic view of the mountains.

Dachstein Sky Walk, Austria The glacier serves as a foundation for a viewing platform with a bridge. The structure is perfectly visible even from the territory of Slovenia and the Czech Republic. Not everyone dare to walk through the suspension bridge, as it looks very fragile. Fencing on the bridge and on the observation deck are made of glass. That further enhances the thrilling sensation and allows you to admire the surrounding mountain scenery without any obstacles.

The length of the bridge on the Dachstein glacier is 100 meters. Entrance to the attraction is completely free for children, and adults have to pay about 3 euros for a ticket. During warmer months, a special entertainment option is available for tourists. They can go down the stairs to a special observation deck with a floor and railings made of durable glass. This observation deck was fitted over a precipice. Even visitors with nerves of steel will have a lot of impressions from a walk. This observation deck is usually open in July and is available before the cold starts. To the beginning - Ritz-Carlton Shanghai Hotel
